First cycle degree courses. The second part of the exam will be oral and will be based on a discussion on the various topics discussed in class.
In particular the student should 1 give an account of the relevant quantities used to describe macroscopic systems, thermodynamic potentials and ensemble. Some classes will be devoted to exercises that students will solve under the teacher’s supervision. Critical points, order parameters and critical exponents.
Kadanoff block spin argument, Renormalisation group in real space. We will study the theoretical bases of classical and quantum statistical mechanics. Ginzburg criterium and upper critical dimension. Renormalisation group in real space. The course is organized in lectures whose contents are presented on the blackboard, sometimes with the help of images, diagrams and videos.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Questions will cover both the theoretical part and the exercises analysed in class. Course Timetable from Sep 25, to Dec 20, Scaling theory and Kadanoff block spin argument. In short the contents of the program can be summarised as follows: Statistical Mechanics Target skills and knowledge: Special attention will be paid to the study of paradigmatic models and of applications to relevant systems in physics.
Theoretical topics are fully explained in class by the teacher. The verification of the acquired knowledge takes place through a common written test with exercises to be solved analytically and open questions on basic concepts.
